What will heaven be like?

 "Song of Songs,"  Marc Chagall 1960 AD

Here is a description of what heaven will be like from St. Alphonsus Liguori:

Heaven "is that mutual communication or surrender of which the spouse in the Canticle speaks when she says: "My beloved is mine and I am his." (Cant. 2:16).  In Heaven the soul gives itself entirely to God and God gives Himself entirely to the soul, as far as its capacity and merits will allow."

St. Ambrose says, “For life is to be with Christ; where Christ is, there is life, there is the kingdom.”

Though neither saint specifically mentions beer, heaven still sounds very appealing.

St. Brigid's idea of heaven does include beer - lots of it.

St. Brigid saw a lake of beer in heaven.   Does Psalm 45: 5 refer to a heavenly river of beer?

The stream of the river maketh the city of God joyful.
